Is it necessary to tell the Gutenberg story?

“1456 Gutenberg Pro” is the second Gutenberg typeface produced by GLC foundry (look at our “1456 Gutenberg”).
This actual font was created inspired from the so called “B42” character set used for the two Gutenberg Latin Bibles (42 and 36 lines), but with a better and fine design than in our first version, more faithful to the finest original printed books appearence. We offer also now a larger choice of the original ligatures and Latin abbreviations, as complete as possible to be usable with OTF specifications.

The complete basic alphabet (with “long s” naturelly)is stricly looking like the real one (including the curious twisted “X”). We have only recreated the capitals W and J,  who was not existing in the time. The numerals, no more existing in the original type set, were inspired from those in use a few years later by early following printers, but matching with the Gutenberg font’s pattern.

The font enclosed West (including Celtic), East, Central European, Baltic and Turkish glyphs.
